Weather anchor compares Tropical Storm Alberto to Spurs’ Victor Wembanyama

The “Wemby effect” is even impacting the weather.

SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Spurs‘ Victor Wembanyama is often called “alien” or “generational.”

But this might be the first time his name has been used to describe a weather system.

With rainfall from Tropical Storm Alberto heading to San Antonio out of the Gulf of Mexico, a Weather Channel anchor did her best to put the magnitude of the storm in perspective.

To share the scope of the storm, she used Wemby’s massive 8-foot wingspan to describe the tropical storm system’s width.

“This huge system has such a huge wingspan. It reminded me of an NBA player: you know, Victor Wembanyama,” she said. “His wingspan is 8 feet! Could you imagine having a wingspan that big? Well, that’s what this system does.”

This storm coming to San Antonio could be a big rainmaker and cause trouble, just like Wemby does on the court versus the opposition.

The 2024 NBA Rookie of the Year averaged 21.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists, and a league-leading 3.6 blocked shots per game. He was the first rookie to finish a season with at least 1,500 points, 250 assists, and 250 blocked shots.

And the forecast for his sophomore season could spell trouble for any team stepping on the court next season against San Antonio.

“What’s for sure is I’m not even close from being at my best. I don’t see my progression stopping anytime soon. So, it’s good, good for confidence and, you know, there’s a lot to correct, a lot to adjust,” Wembanyama said last season.
